Bentek Solar Announces Shipments of Over 60MW of Industry Leading Circuit Breaker Re-Combiners

The company has shipped over 60MW of Circuit Breaker Re-combiners. The combiners use industry-leading circuit breaker technology, eliminating the need for standard fuses.

SAN JOSE, CA ― December 2010 ― Bentek Solar, a leader in the design and manufacture of optimized Configure-To-Order solar combiners, re-combiners and solar safety systems, announces that it has shipped over 60MW of Circuit Breaker Re-combiners. The combiners use industry-leading circuit breaker technology, eliminating the need for standard fuses.


"There are no fuses with these 100 percent circuit breaker re-combiners that provide maximum performance and safety with UL 489 breakers. The circuit breaker serves as a disconnect that complies with NEC requirements while providing circuit protection like that from a fuse. The price of circuit breakers is comparable to the cost of a fuse plus individual disconnect, while circuit breakers require much less maintenance since there are no fuses to replace," said John H. Buckley, leading sales and marketing at Bentek Solar.

Bentek Solar re-combiners provide the final interface to the inverter on large commercial or utility PV systems, and feature a flexible design for customization and ease of installation, as well as an enhanced level of user safety.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
